Obagi Nu Derm is a highly popular product which has received worldwide acclaim for a number of years now. Renowned as probably the most effective skin care brand available on the market today, Obagi has a huge number of fans all over the globe, and their popularity seems to increase with every coming year.

The Nu Derm system, which is available through prescription, has been formulated to transform the skin’s appearance at cellular level, leading to healthier, radiant looking skin. Although the ageing of the skin is an entirely natural process, sustained exposure to the sun can contribute to skin ageing prematurely by slowing down cell regeneration. This can be problematic for women, and can lead to many issues in terms of self-esteem, but can also lead to wider health problems later on in life.

People who use sun beds frequently are particularly at risk of photo damage, as this shocking picture of Atomic Kitten’s Liz McClarnon taken with a Visia camera shows:


Liz was a frequent user of sunbeds during her teenage years, something which she now regrets, stating in an interview with The Sun:

“It’s been eight years since I used a tanning bed –I stopped when I got panicky about skin cancer. Now I’ll only get a tan out of a bottle…I’m worried much of the damage has already been done – the picture looks like an old woman”

The Obagi Nu Derm system can assist in making skin more resilient to damage and reverse some of the effects of photo damage on the skin’s appearance through promoting collagen and elastin production naturally. This leads to skin becoming more hydrated and even in colour.

The system has a number of processes which aim to remove old skin cells whilst promoting the development of new ones, resulting in a clearer, brighter complexion and even skin tone. Obagi Nu Derm is also effective in removing acne scars and has recently won the 2011Gold Award at the Aesthetic Medicine Awards in the UK. It is also the number one prescribed skin care product by doctors in the USA.
